Dan Shapiro created Robot Turtles to give his kids the superpower anyone could wish for - an understanding of computer programming.
Teach Your Kids to Program Before They Learn To Read…
Robot Turtles has a sneaky way of teaching kids – as young as preschoolers - the basics of programming. Inspired by the Logo programming language, the goal is for kids to get their turtle to a matching colored jewel. While kids get to be the programmers and have all the control, grownups act as the computer, following commands and making all sorts of goofy bops and beeps along the way. And, since Robot Turtles is played offline, it also allows for some good old-fashioned family game time!

World’s Leader in Addictively Fun Games That Sharpen Your Mind!
I’m Bill Ritchie. I founded ThinkFun in 1985 with my wife Andrea Barthello. Our company mission is to develop thinking skills through play, if you don’t know ThinkFun please visit our website.
We are incredibly excited about Robot Turtles! I agree wholeheartedly that coding is an essential 21st century thinking skill. Robot Turtles is an ideal representation of programming concepts for young children, we are very excited to be working on how to develop these ideas further.
For me personally, Robot Turtles is an amazing fit in honor of my brother Dennis Ritchie. Dennis was considered by many to be the greatest coder of all time. He was awarded the National Medal of Technology for creating the C programming language and co-creating the UNIX operating system. Robot Turtles would have been his favorite ThinkFun game yet!
